    Mysterious Nexus phone shows up in Google KitKat statue video | Android Central

    As seen in the still we've grabbed from the video (seen above), someone is holding onto a phone unlike we've seen before. It's big, flat, says "Nexus" on the back in landscape orientation and looks a heck of a lot like a shrunken Nexus 7 (2013) the materials and camera lens look nearly identical to the latest tablet.
    More and more credence to the Nexus 4's successor coming very soon. Edit: here are two screenshots from the video, at 1920x1280.

    I like the look of it. Soft touch and judging from the size of the lens the camera is gonna be amazing

    I'm all for optimism on that... I'd love a Nexus '5' with 4.4 Kit Kat and a very nice camera. Just think of the PhotoSpheres..

    Also worth a look is Jerry's take on the photo. Definitely a good idea to remember that we don't know for sure what that logo is, though personally I still think the resemblance to LG's logo is strong.

    Google did say that the next Nexus phones will have great cameras. I am very happy with the camera lens and yeah! The photospheres will be better just hoping for a higher quality front facer because I do a lot of hangoutsing

    He thinks that the logo pictured in the KitKat statue video resembles an FCC logo more so than an LG one. I agree that it's very possible (and I wouldn't be at all surprised if it were the case), but as I said, I still think the resemblance to the LG logo is strong.

    Edit: here's a bit of clarification from Jerry:

    I'm not trying to say it's an HTC phone. Just that there can be lots of other stuff back there, especially on a supposed pre-production unit.

    I was under the impression that when Google bought Motorola's handset division it was to be able to produce their own branded phone rather than farm it our to others. Am I correct?

    Google had originally said that Motorola would receive no preferential treatment in the Nexus manufacturer bidding/selection process, but there have been "leaks" of both LG and Motorola testing Nexus hardware if I remember correctly. It certainly wouldn't surprise me if they at least put something together, but whether the end result is turning into the next Nexus retail phone is anyone's guess.

    More information will probably make its way out over the next few weeks, as the time until a presumed launch with KitKat decreases.

    I could use a Nexus phone with Motorola's radios, that's for sure.

    I wouldn't mind a very sturdy phone with the same sort of soft-touch material as the 2013 Nexus 7. It'd be different, but I think it could work if done right.

    I actually think the soft touch looks great.

    I do believe it was said a while back that the upcoming Nexus phone would have an improved camera, though at the moment I can't recall where or by who. If the apparent size of that lens opening is any indication, it should be an improvement over the Nexus 4 at the very least.

    I've gone back and added two full-size screenshots to the main post.

    Well, an LG device just cleared the FCC, missing the Verizon LTE band, and with a backplate that has holes that line up quite nicely with the flash and camera lens of the phone in the video. The plot thickens.

    Also, first post on AC in quite some time. Felt good. *waves @ AC*

    Edit - Oops. I better update my signature. I'm not an advisor anymore.
